Also could it be possible too ad letters like: æ, ð, ö, å, þ ETC. with maybe some codes like: too get æ write (vae)

With a simple hack u can get those letters in ur name and with a proper keyboard layout u can also type em in the chat, so no problem.

Also some tunics and hats (rus especially) are bad cases of reeactor's fantasies.

Ooh I'd like that. Especially hats. Imo, everyone should wear a hat. Random free hat when you don't buy one. :razz:

On the topic of hats, is the magical and magnificent Rus Fur Hat so expensive because it is so awesome? I miss the day of entire Rus teams donning the fur hat for it's power and kicking ass.

@Noble Wolf; The red one you mean? I thought it'd be for lore-reasons, I recall red furry hats like those were a symbol of nobility so your regular stinking druzhinik wouldn't have one.

That's the badger. To me it's one of the many Vikingr memes along with Low Porn Orc, I just feel bad when I purchase it over a weapon for the magical properties it imbues.

You missed the point.
This, frankly, is the problem. You don't explain. You don't list or link sources. You don't inform. You just write a few words and think that that is that. How, in your opinion, has Æthelwulf missed the point? Explain, talk, discuss, that's what a forum is for! If it's something covered in your thread then quote it and link it.

There isn't anything wrong with Æthelwulf's suggestion or line of thought. We have examples of weapons with blades made in one place and furniture placed on them elsewhere - such as the Wheeler's Type VI, Peterson Type Z found at Wandsworth. We also have finds of furniture found seperate from weapons, such as the rather lovely copper-alloy Saxon lower sword guard from Exeter. We know the people of the time were resourceful and recycled items or put them to new uses, especially with iron or metal items - iron was not cheap! It would not be beyond the skill of a smith to knock the rivets off of the furniture of one weapon with a broken/shattered/bent blade and put them on to a different blade, modifying them to fit if needs be. The important thing is we don't have enough finds to say this was never done and in the few we have there are examples of it having been done. When these sorts of sensible, practical and logical suggestions come up they should be matched to sources to see if there is a reasonable enough argument against it, and if there is an argument against it we have to prove it with primary sources, not the other way round.

[source of finds; Logan Thompson - Ancient Weapons in Britain]

The point is - you cannot mixt Blades of some type with something of other type for example.
you can only use found and sources and dont try to use any fantasy.

"You don't list or link sources. You don't inform."
is it so? All Sword sources you need i have already posted: "Swords of Viking Age"

PS: And after hundred years some one gona try to mix parts of AK-47 with some parts of MG-42.... well why not yes?)

Indeed! I love that fur hat so much. Always try to save money to get it asap.

Which is another thread and one which people may not have looked in, hence why you should always put in a link or explain otherwise people will just think you're being petulant.

Your analogy, I'm afraid, is terrible. You're talking about putting the moving parts of an AK-47 along with those of an MG42 into one firearm - the working part of a sword is the blade and you don't obviously stick two sword blades together. The hilt furniture is the equivilant of grips, stock, sights, bipods - whatever, they're all parts that CAN be changed and modified to be put on to another firearm. All of those parts have a use but are not integral to getting the weapon to function. You could take an MG42 and remove the stock and bipod and it will still function perfectly as a weapon. You could alter and put on the stock of an M16 and a tripod and it will still function perfectly as a machinegun.

Swords are not forged as one complete unit consisting of blade, quillion/crossbar & pommel. They are forged in seperate components and put together - ease of 'manufacturing' and construction. The weapon can then be assembled and, in future if needs be, the hilt furniture and grips can be changed or altered as needs be - the sword blade is still the blade and stays the same. Plus if you have spent a lot of money on some gilded pommel in what we refer to as the Trewhiddle style, inlaid brass and gold forming intricate patterns, then you're hardly going to just say "Nevermind" should the blade break or bend or wear out. You'd get the weapon down to a smith, get him to remove the furniture and put it on a new blade. Simple.

More like swapping an AK-47's furniture for AKM's furniture... which would't be nearly as big of a mistake, if it could be called a mistake at all.

You're exaggerating the issue at hand.

Edit: Dammit, Rapier ninja'd me.

Problem is old historically accurate items were beautiful, even if they were cheap peasant clothes, they had nice aesthetics, while reeactors mostly don't have any sense at all combining different elements that don't work together, using old carvings as embroidery and making up their own horrible pseudo historical symbols. I would trust film makers and theatrical costume creators more than reenactors, at least they have a taste.

Though I do get sad when ever I look through books like this and see all the various, blades, pommels etc, for I always dream of the day when a game lets me make my own sword by sticking various types together.

Wow it took me forever to find this through all posts. I agree with Rapier that it would indeed be possible, not being an AK/MG42 situation. I wonder however what would give this to you gameplay wise and how it should be done? cRPG might have it? But they have accounts and such if I am understand correctly. I don't think this is appropriate for Vikingr.

Also, it would only count for swords, unless ofcourse, we want spear and axeheads attached to a different length of pole.

And don't mind Helge, he has lots of knowledge, but very little time to share it properly  :lol:
